Great advice from long time member Stu:
I have had the misfortune to encounter some Find A Grave members who are nothing but bullies, and are emboldened by because they are not face to face with the people they are shoving around. I have no problem reporting such people to Find A Grave and Ancestry's Executive Action Team in Provo, and encourage you to do the same if you encounter such a gorgon. If you are feeling mistreated, and cannot work your differences out, or if you do not feel safe because of threats, report the abuse. You do not have to put up with it.

RE: Very Strange

I am pretty confident that Lysander Mortimer Van Dyke died in Florida. I can ask my father if he knows why he was living there at that time.

Wife #1 Minerva Minnie May Schafer Van Dyke-died March 1939 in NJ.
children: Irma, Lawrence, Wava, Bessie, Jessie

Wife #2 Mary "Mollie" Kester Getzinger Van Dyke
no children
Married Lysander August 1939 Lima, Ohio.

Paulsboro, NJ is where Lysander Mortimer's daughter (Irma Van Dyke Woodard) from his first marriage lived. According to my dad, Minnie Van Dyke developed parkinsons disease. Near the end, she went to live with her daughter Irma and her husband Andrew Woodard. She died while living with them. Lysander was a bit of a "rounder" according to my dad and was living in Ohio at the time.

Minnie died in March of 1939. At the time Lysander was living at the boarding house of Mary "Mollie" Kester Getzinger in Lima, Ohio. According to my records Lysander married Mollie in August 1939. My father remembers meeting Mollie but didn't realize that his grandfather ever actually married her. I have a copy of their wedding announcement from 1939.

Census records support this oral record I received from my dad. Please let me know if you need any additional clarification on the grave records.
